3. MARILYN HOTCHKISS' BALLROOM DANCING & CHARM SCHOOL
Randall Miller (USA)
Steve Mills (the voice of William Hurt) remembers 1962 when British Bulldog was the favourite pastime of schoolboys, when girls were not worth even thinking about (and actually to like one was 'to be a rat'), and how things changed when as a lad (Elden Ratliff) he first encountered Marilyn Hotchkiss (Patricia Fraser) and her famous Ballroom Dancing & Charm School, thus finding out that little Lisa (Kellie Parker) was not so bad after all. An enchanting walk - or rather dance - down memory lane. A production of the Center for Advanced Film and Television Studies at the American Institute.
